Aloe Vera Changed My Skin — Once I Used It For More Than Sunburns

Like tangled-up Conair dryers and dusty Clinique samples, almost every bathroom cabinet graveyard has a jumbo-sized tub of electric-green aloe vera gel buried in the back right corner. For me, it’s always been the thing I reach for in mid-July when I fall asleep on my stomach halfway through a trashy beach read — not something I slather on every day as part of my routine. But that all changed when I visited Aruba last year.The Caribbean island, which is situated so close to the Equator that you...

Brutal season means Kings have plenty of work ahead

Seventy-one points. That’s all the Kings could muster in this just-concluded season, and that figures to weigh heavily on the minds of all in the organization during the offseason. Other than the strike-shortened 2012-13 season, the points are the fewest the Kings have had since getting 71 in 2007-08. Moreover, they missed the playoffs for the third time in five seasons. For a team that won Stanley Cup championships in 2012 and 2014, to say that’s unacceptable to the franchise is putting it mild...

Love and Politics Go Awry in James Sturm's 'Off Season'

None Three things I strongly suspect are true about graphic novelist James Sturm: he is or has been married, he has kids, he doesn't have a dog head. Of the three, I'm least certain of the last. I also really, really hope he didn't vote for Jill Stein instead of Hillary Clinton in 2016, but honestly I have no idea. The latter comment is oddly central to Off Season, a graphic novel set in the aftermath of the 2016 US presidential election, which both frames and represents the marital turmoil of...

How To Find The Right Serum To Transform Your Skin

Like booster supplements in smoothies and freshly pressed green-drink orders, the use of serums in skin care can at first seem like a superfluous, if not costly indulgence. Sure, these shots of concentrated nutrients might add extra oomph to our complexions, but if we’re already keeping our skin clean and hydrated, can adding a serum to the mix make that much of a difference?According to Dr. Alexander Rivkin, a Los Angeles-based cosmetic surgeon, and New Orleans-based dermatologist Mary Lupo, M...

Is Your Blood The Secret To Ageless Skin?

In 2013, Kobe Bryant tore his Achilles tendon. Busting that thick, stretchy cord, which connects the calf muscle to the heel bone on the back of the lower leg, is excruciatingly painful for a normal person. But for an NBA star who, at 35, was already considered well past his prime, it was also enough to potentially end his career. (Because in major-league sports, if a sexual assault allegation doesn't do you in, your advanced age certainly will.)So Bryant went to Germany to have his blood drawn...

Meet The Brains Behind The Future Of Beauty

In 2018, skin care is a serious business. Long gone are the days when women blindly bought whatever product someone behind a counter told them to; in its place, a new era of intelligence, transparency, and information has arrived. While makeup has become more democratic — think Rihanna venturing into the industry with the hugely successful Fenty Beauty, or Into The Gloss founder Emily Weiss creating Glossier, a brand that’s just received $52 million more investment capital — skin care has veere...

Olympic Shock: Canadian Men Lose to Germany

Germany will face the Olympic Athletes from Russia (OAR) for the Gold Medal in Olympics Men’s Hockey. The Canadian men’s team lost their semi-final game to Germany 4-3. To say it was shocking is an understatement. Few expected the German team to be so strong or so effective. The Germans were simply hungrier. Their relentless pressure in the second period gave Germany the lead they would need to send Canada to the consolation game for Bronze against the Czech Republic. Just a day after the Canadi...

How do you say “Do you believe in miracles?” in German?

GANGNEUNG, South Korea—When the final buzzer sounded Friday night German forward Matthias Plachta was just as stunned as the rest of the world that Germany was in the Olympic Games hockey gold medal final. “I was like ‘holy (expletive). I don’t know what’s going on right now,’” Plachta said. Germany meets Russia on Sunday (today at 7:30  p.m.)  at the Gangneung Hockey Centre as the most unlikely team to reach the last day of an Olympic tournament with a shot at gold since a bunch of college kids...

Germany Struggling Toward Medal Round

The playoff portion of the men’s hockey competition is about to get underway in PyeongChang. Sweden, Canada, the Olympic Athletes of Russia, and the Czech Republic were the top finishers of the preliminary Groups, and have thus earned byes for the first playoff round of the tournament.
